Portrait by Derek Ridgers
Quote 18 Aug 23 notes
[M]any scholars now believe they were solely used as orthopaedic or corrective devices. Their supposed role as tortuous implements of fashion was undoubtedly a tall tale perpetuated by La Vie Parisienne.
— Lingerie: A Modern Guide by Lesley Scott (Page 43, referring to 16th/17th cent. corsets) 
Text 18 Aug 13 notes

Europeans:

Learned advanced medieval chemistry from all the Arab people they slaughtered;

Spent the following centuries not even getting close to basic medicine and hygiene, but trying to make diamonds out of cheese or some shit.

Text 18 Aug 4 notes

Losing the sofa in the house move was the best thing that ever happened to me.

Interior snobbery almost at critical level.

Link 15 Aug 17 notes Gene Simmons of KISS tells depressed people to ‘kill themselves’, cops Triple M ban»

the-transcendent:

cogito-ergo-amo:

Time to delete every KISS track I own from my music library. Gene Simmons can fuck right off. I’m willing to put up with some problematic shit from artists I like a lot of the time - if I stopped to think about Morrissey for more than a couple of minutes I’d never be able to listen to The Smiths again - but deliberately and unambiguously instructing people with mental illnesses to kill themselves is amongst the vilest things a person can ever say.

I’m also not entirely comfortable with him using his mother’s status as a Holocaust survivor to justify his eugenics-endorsing remarks. Selling out and co-opting one of the most appalling crimes against humanity ever committed to push an ignorant, stigmatising agenda of violence and erasure of people with disabilities is just grotesque.

Article, obviously, comes with a content warning for his remarks about depression, addiction and suicide.

As always, if you or somebody you know is currently struggling, there is help to get you through the worst of it. Here is a list of helplines

Oh fucking hell…

I’ve met this guy and I can 100% confirm that he’s a dickfragment.
